Every living creature lives by an unwritten covenant, moral code, including mother earth.
Break the covenant and death is sure to follow in short order.

I think you've got it all wrong. Humans don't feel the need to do what is good and right. They feel the need to tell OTHERS to do what is good and right.

God/Nature doesn't play favorites, no matter what so called "chosen people" tell you so.
It is a system that keeps everything moving and somewhat balanced and when it gets out of balance the violence and chaos that ensues is what sets it right again.
Yeah right. And what moral code do animals and insects have? Eat, survive and reproduce?
Why do many evil people live longer lives than good people?

Some deep but terrible questions:
Why do humans always need to do what's right and moral, when God and Mother Nature have no morality at all? Mother Nature kills countless animals, insects and plant life every second. And God allows wars, famines, poverty, disease, hunger, greed, and evil to kill people everyday. He does nothing to stop it. He lets evil people prosper and good people die young. He allows the strong to take advantage of the weak, and the "might is right" principle to rule the world. So if God himself has no morals, why must humans? How can there be any "universal morality code" if God or Mother Nature doesn't follow it? It's a terrible question, I know. Nothing makes sense in this world or life. But for crying out loud, stop pretending that there is some absolute "divine moral code" that exists for all creation.edit on 26-1-2012 by WWu777 because: (no reason given)

Mankind has morals because they are guided by their divine higher selves (rightness and reason) conscience.
The unbreakable number one law of the universe is; Thinking creates human physical destiny. This law cannot and will not be interfered with. So the bad things as well as the good that befalls man and mankind are of his own making. This is to teach man what to think or create and what not to think and therefore not create.
Man, who is emeshed in nature (the body) thinks mainly of things of nature, namely sex, food, a name (fame) possessions and power (control over things and others). This type of thinking creates destiny that must be worked out on the physical plane of the universe and continues to bind man to nature. Thus is the explanation of reincarnation. Man continues his rounds of physical existences to work out the destiny he has created for himself by his own thinking.
Man will continue in this way until he learns that the glam and gloss of nature is an illusion and never brings the satisfaction that somehow never seems to be sated. He will then look for a way out of the nature trap and use his thinking to find out who and what he really is.
